Last month, Senate Democrats called on Stephen Johnson, Administrator of the Environmental Protection Agency, to resign his position after continually stonewalling Congress, offering misleading testimony, and caving in to Bush’s radical anti-environmentalism. In a press conference today, Johnson declared he would not heed their request:
Johnson quickly sidestepped on Thursday a question on his reaction to the [senators’] calls in a teleconference with reporters.
“If you want to talk about that you’re more than happy to talk to … our press officer. But no, I’m not,” he said. Then the teleconference ended immediately.
